NEW! Student Parking Permit Registration Open for Spring 2018!

DECEMBER 07, 2017 - Student Parking Permit registration is now open for the Spring 2018 semester! Spring 2018 parking permit rates: https://www.uncw.edu/parking/permits.html#students 

Parking zones are assigned based upon class status and availability. Students are encouraged to register early to get the best zone assignment for their class status. The permit price will be placed on your student account, so you don't have to pay when you register.

If you have financial aid, complete the Title IV Authorization Release Form (available online, via SeaNet, Login, Student Services & Financial Aid, Financial Aid, "Title IV Authorization"), and the charge may post to your student account in time for financial aid to possibly cover the cost of the parking permit.

All student vehicles must be registered annually at the beginning of the fall semester or within 48 hours after the first class of the fall/spring semester and both summer sessions. Vehicles of students who register for classes after the beginning of the fall/ spring semesters and both summer sessions must be registered within 48 hours of that date. All students must provide current automobile insurance information for liability purposes for any type of permit, including temporary permits, in accordance with state law.

Parking Lot Work Underway in Preparation for Allied Health Building Construction

MONDAY JUNE 19, 2017 - UNCW is preparing for the first phase of construction related to the new Allied Health Building, funded as part of the $2 billion ConnectNC bond approved by voters in 2016. Site preparation is underway for a new faculty/staff parking lot on the south side of Wagoner Hall across from the Student Recreation Center and expansion of existing Lot FF on Wagoner Hall’s north side (Cahill Drive). The lots will replace Lots S and T, which occupy the site of the new building in front of McNeill Hall and the Teaching Lab Building. An additional student lot is being planned for another area of campus.  

The site work is the first step in construction of the Allied Health Building. Paving of the expanded parking lots will begin in fall 2017 and should finish in winter 2018. Pedestrian traffic to University Suites will be impacted and will be rerouted around the construction site. Disruption to vehicular traffic will be minimal.

Groundbreaking for the Allied Health Building will take place in January 2018, and the project is scheduled for completion in early 2020. The work will require establishing a pedestrian detour around the section of Chancellor’s Walk that crosses through the site. Every effort will be made to minimize disruption of normal vehicular traffic for the project’s duration.

In preparation for construction, faculty and staff whose offices are located in two modular buildings near McNeill Hall will be moved in fall 2017 to a new facility on MacMillan Avenue near Isaac Bear Early College High School.

The Office of Facilities will provide updates on this project as needed.
